Generating Questions / Time: 15 minutes

The Identify stage is a challenging, important, exciting stage in the inquiry process.

With teacher/librarian assistance, students will generate questions, and the librarian will work with students to group them into categories. Using a SMART Board or Google Doc will provide flexibility to move ideas around on the page.

Questions can be posted throughout the Gather and Create Phases to remind students about their research questions.
